Background

My research interests concern media (literature, cinema, telephone, radio, internet) and cultural studies (popular cultures, reception). I am interested by both the technical and the cultural aspects (social, aesthetic) of media studies, with a main focus on Francophone cultures in Africa (Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Congo) and in North America (Quebec, Acadia, and Louisiana).

My current research deals with the audio-visual mediation of orality (speech and gesture). My research projects include a study of sound/image synchronisation, the electrification of the audio-visual image, the mediation of orality, the live commentary during screenings, the effects of remediation, and the cultural practices described as “minor” by Deleuze and Guattari (1975).
